Now is the time of the year when recent graduates make tests, dynamics and interviews to get a job as a trainee.

Most of selections happens between September and November. "We're carrying out 17 processes, all at the same time", says Caroline Cobiak, coordinator of Across, a company specialized in hiring trainees. Another company like that, Cia de Talentos, has 30 processes open, according its director Paula Esteves.

The simultaneous selections force the candidates to choose few companies. This is the case of Enzo Fraletti, 24 years old, a recent graduated in Business Administration. He was disputing for a job in five different companies, but gave up two of them to not harm the other processes.

A team of archaeologists found eleven skeletons, plus ceremonial artifacts, adornments and bonfire stains, aged approximately 4,000 to 5,000 years, at an archaeological site where they are building the cable-stayed bridge of Laguna, State of Santa Catarina.

According to scholars, members of the Research Group in Archaeology and Patrimonial Education (Grupep) of Unisul, the materials may be owned by indigenous communities that lived in the area 2,000 years before Christ. So far, five skeletons were recovered and there are six to be removed from excavation – held in sambaqui Cabeçudas.

The works are expected to be finalized later this week and are part of the schedule of works of cable-stayed bridge. The project, executed by the Camargo Corrêa Builder Company, connects the communities Bentos and Bananais, in Laguna, in the south of Santa Catarina, and is part of the project to double the BR-101 highway, which crosses the north coast until the Brazil southern, with 2,965 miles long.
